A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District project to plant willow poles along 30,000 feet of levees in the Sacramento and San Joaquin river systems is under way, designed to preserve habitat for threatened fish. The work follows extensive environmental and engineering analysis to ensure that the small, native trees will provide maximum habitat benefit without harming the levees. Planting began Jan. 23, 2013 and is expected to conclude for the year by the end of February. The habitat project is the final step in completing emergency levee repairs the district began in 2007.
